The department of mathematics promotes the development of skills in logical reasoning, problem solving, data analysis, and the communication of ideas. Two degree prorams are available to accommodate students' interests and career goals:
These programs are designed to strike a balance between theory and application, preparing students for entry into a variety of careers in business and industry, the teaching profession, and graduates study in mathematical sciences.
The use of technology is integrated throughout the mathematics curriculum via graphing calculators, computer algebra systems, and statistical tools. Software currently in use includes Geometer's Sketchpad, Minitab, and Microsoft Excel. Beginning in the fall, new students will be issued iPad tablets and the Mathematics Department will explore uses of this technology in the mathematics classroom.
